Since I seldom participate, not very limericky, I would not
presume, but the picture looks delicious.

Luke- I swear, the picture was not crooked when it was uploaded! Individual tastes aside, I can't vouch for certain. It did get eaten. smile Thanks.

I bought the flower arrangement not knowing that inside was a bromeliad. I was delighted, upon learning the word, to discover it's name! Plus, pineapples line the counter ($.88 each!) Always learning. Love it smile

LIBRARY LIMERICK

Surrounded by lexicon books,
A poet sits pensive, and cooks
New limerick verse
Some better, some worse
In one of his library's nooks.

A trickster ensnared by bituminous bait
Thought, I'll be damned If I let this seal my fate.
Not pitching a fit, his wit did billow.
Off through the thicket to his home in the willow,
He left fox to contemplate viscous flow rate.

Y'know, May, it kinda kills the game when you don't post new words.

I hired this fella named Yokum
But his resume seems to be hokum
He sings a nice song
But he sleeps all day long
And he doesn't wake up till I poke 'im!

Terribly sorry, still no dictionary and have been too lazy to go to the library.

Profuse thanks for the offered words in my stead. Will curb my enthusiasm to play until I can procure a hard copy.

(Psst...if you don't have a hard copy of anything handy, and you make up two words that are reasonably close to each other, nobody will know. Shh!)
